Outstanding effort from Durham, centred around their England stars Ben Stokes and Mark Wood. You felt they were a few short, but Wood produced a spell of spell-binding magnificence. We have a Durham v Northamptonshire final. It's not all about money, you could say. It will be a quick turnaround to the final because of the delays, so we'll take a quick break back and be back with you, on a new page, shortly. Cheers!

Arshad to Bresnan, SIX runs, just clears Stokes at deep midwicket! Bresnan heaves a full ball from outside off, didn't quite come out of the middle, it's a teasing one for Stokes who isn't right on the rope, tries to leap for it but the ball just clears him

Shashi: "Chiming in with Geoff there regarding English test batsmen. I love the finals day, so much superior to IPL. Three games in a day is just too good. Good on the English for inventing another excellent idea. Thanks for the good coverage, the quality certainly deserves it."
